Prosecutors: Man pimped out girl, 17, with mental disability
A New Jersey man has been charged with human trafficking after authorities say he forced a 17-year-old girl with developmental disabilities to perform sex acts on several men in exchange for money after she ran away from home.
Prosecutors say 26-year-old Breion Turner of Trenton is also charged with kidnapping and endangering the welfare of a child. Turner remains jailed on $300,000 bail.
Authorities say Turner held the girl hostage for four days beginning on Oct. 11 and threatened to kill her if she tried to leave.
Prosecutors on Monday said the scheme came to light after a relative found video of a man sexually abusing the girl.
Turner's attorney says his client maintains his innocence.
Prosecutors say a second suspect remains at large.
